By August 11, 2015Parkland Players

Physical activity is an important thing to promote for your children, and hiking with them is one way to do that! BC has many great hiking trails to take your children on.

Some General Tips Before Going Hiking:

  • Research the trails you choose before taking children to be sure they are age appropriate
  • Bring plenty of water and food
  • Plan hikes that have good spots for children to stop, explore, take a break or have a snack.
  • Don’t push too hard, if they children are not enjoying the hike, you can always turn around and go back
  • Keep your children close by

Here are some good places to go hiking:

  • Capilano Regional Park (shown in photos)
